Converting .ipt to .sldprt

By Scott Williams on 11 Jun 02:05 2 answers 1 comment

Hello everyone. I'm converting several models from .ipt to .sldprt by saving the .ipt as IGES and/or STEP files, opening in Solidworks then saving as .sldprt. This is working for some parts, but not all. I'm running into issues with Solidworks not being able to heal some surfaces and gaps. I noticed when Solidworks can't heal the surfaces/gaps, the imported part becomes a surface model and NOT a solid model. However, I NEED solid models. Any ideas? Can Autodesk Inventor save as .sldprt or .prt or an other extension that Solidworks can use?

Thanks for the help!

    Open SW, Open-> file typi *igs or *stp. Then show the button "options", check option create Solid model and open this part.
    Try heal the part. If in this option you have gaps you need to close this useing a surface.
